Subject: [PATCH v2] tracing: Set user_events to BROKEN
Date: Wed, 30 Mar 2022 15:58:35 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20220330155835.5e1f6669@gandalf.local.home> (raw)

From: "Steven Rostedt (Google)" <>

After being merged, user_events become more visible to a wider audience
that have concerns with the current API. It is too late to fix this for
this release, but instead of a full revert, just mark it as BROKEN (which
prevents it from being selected in make config). Then we can work finding
a better API. If that fails, then it will need to be completely reverted.


Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt (Google) <>
Changes since v1:
 - Add depends on COMPILE_TEST too (Linus Torvalds)

 Hopefully, no distro is idiotic enough to enable COMPILE_TEST in their
 builds to get this feature.
